OOTD- What I wore to the Dean Gera/ Make Up Store event- C is for Confidence

Hey Guys,

I hope you are all doing well and looking forward to the weekend!

Earlier this week, we were invited to the opening of 'Dean Gera' hair salon in collaboration with 'Make Up Store'.

I decided to go for a more glamorous outfit for this opening, I don't usually do shimmery material, however, this fabulous play suit caught my eye, not only since it is quite high waisted and hugs your curves in all the right places but I loved the draping and shine of the material. Apart from that, this play suit comes with a Shell Necklace attached to it, so there's no need to spend an extra dime on getting a necklace to match with the outfit ;)

I find that due to my new found confidence due to my weight loss and other un-related factors, I am finally experimenting with fashion and enjoying dressing up. I am still not as adventurous as I want to be, mind you, I am getting there. This is already a huge difference from what I was last year (as a person). To you, I might look like this loud, bubbly, confident person, however, if you know me on a more personal level, you will know that I am quite insecure especially about the way I look. For some odd reason, this outfit, made me feel great about the way I'm looking and finally feeling good about myself, something which I was struggling with lately, due to the fact I am currently dealing with some personal issues which put me down immensely this past week so a confidence boost was all I needed!

That night, my best friend and fellow blogger Reb, wore an amazing Jumpsuit which I was dying to steal from her, however, I think she did justice to the outfit much more than I would have! (It was seriously made for her!) Check out her look here:

New Look Shell Pink 2 in 1 Necklace Playsuit
New Look Black Bandeau
P..S Bracelets
New Look Purple Pumps
New Look Purple Clutch
Tresor Paris Earrings

I hope you enjoyed this look and remember, when you are feeling down, find an outlet which will give you a confidence boost, be it a nice outfit, a great make up look, anything, since sometimes that is all you need to get you through anything you are going through xx

Till next time!
